and Gloom for the Deveraux Family.
date May 20, 2005]
One: It is the same day, a short while later, Mickey and Alice
are gone. Maggie walks over to Celeste who is still affected by
her vision. We hear Jennifer laughing in the background. Maggie
knows she has had another vision, and asks if something bad is
going to happen. Celeste denies it.
I'm not going to let you do this again, Celeste!
Not to this family, no more bad predictions! It's
time for us to be happy again! Do you hear me?!
We are going to be happy!
looks over to the other side of the room, and Maggie turns to
look too. Jack and Jennifer are sitting together looking through
some album, they are smiling and laughing, and very happy and
Oh, no, no, no (points to something on the page, shake his head
No, what was I eating?
turns away and looks heavenward, and mouths, "Oh please!"
Two: Jack and Jennifer are still looking over the album, Jack
is seated in a chair and she is seated on the arm rest.
Oh, look at this. I cannot believe that Abby found this old scrapbook.
JACK: Hmm. Wha....
turn the page.
picks up a dried weed, and looks at it frowning.
Oh, my goodness.
JACK: Why do you have this dried up little, old
weed in here (turning it around, still frowning)?
JENNIFER: (Laughs) That is not (hits and shakes
his arm) a weed! (Takes hold of it too) Don't
you remember when Abby gave this to us on our anniversary? It
was (takes it) out of the garden of our old house. Remember?
JACK: Oh, yes, I remember....
puts it to her nose and smells it.
(Cont.) ..... the..... the weed patch.
looks at him.
JENNIFER: Stop it (Jennifer
gives him another good natured slug and push for not being nostalgic)!
Ouch! It was a--
JENNIFER: It was not a weed
patch (sits on his lap)....
JENNIFER: It was beautiful in the day.....
JENNIFER: (Cont., putting her arm around him)
....when we lived there, don't you remember.
JACK: (Slightly sarcastic) Yes! It was a beautiful
continues to laugh, and look at the "weed."
(Cont.) ....Yes, I remember it well. (Looking at the scrapbook)
I remember this book very well.
looks over his should at the book.
(Cont.) The entire time that Tony was holding me hostage....
looks at it filled with emotion.
(Cont.) .... I thought about everything in it.
Jennifer puts her hand on his shoulder, and then loving takes
his chin in her hand.
(Cont.) a million times, and then some.
her other hand she rubs his shoulder, and looks down at him deeply
in love, and he returns the gaze, also deeply in love.
leans down to kiss Jack, and he responds. She puts aside the scrapbook,
and they continue to kiss passionately.
Meanwhile Maggie and Celeste are watching them. Maggie very emotionally
turns to Celeste.
Haa.... Look at them! That's the way they used to be before their
lives got turned upside down. Before the Salem Stalker, on the
island and Tony's castle. This awful nightmare is over
now! It's really over! And they deserve
to be happy!
agrees that they do deserve happiness. She apologizes for she
did not want to upset anyone. Maggie tells her, "No more
predictions about *doom and gloom*!" Again she apologizes
and tells Maggie that she should be leaving. Celeste walks out
into the hallway, when she stops, gasping in pain and stumbles.
She either has another vision or flashes back to the one earlier.
The living room is empty and dark. A skull appears, and it becomes
illuminated. The skull seems to flash. Then Celeste calls out.
Oh, dear God, No!
rushes over to her. From the living room Jennifer, Jack behind
her, rush up to her.
JACK: Is she all right?
JENNIFER: What happened?
gasps, terrified by what she has envisioned.
Three: Meanwhile, Roman has surprised Bo at the police station.
Bo is thrilled to see his brother. Roman then tells him about the
surviovrs and that Tony is dead, and breaks the sad news about Caroline
and Victor also believed to be dead. Abe comes by, and Roman and
he have an emotion reunion too. TEK is there and there is tension
between him and Abe. It appears that Celeste's fears about him may
Four: Back at the Deveraux', Celeste is on the couch, Jennifer is
standing by her and Jack is hovering around. Maggie sits next to
her and gives her some water.
Celeste, here's some water.
CELESTE: Oh, thank you dahling (starts sipping
JENNIFER: Celeste, what happened?
CELESTE: (Runs her hand over her hair) Hmmm (not
wanting to upset them) I haa.... (looking at Jennifer) I just felt
a little light headed, I'll be fine (looking at the glass).
JACK: Are you sure, we could call Lexie, right
CELESTE: No, no....
JACK: (Cont.) I'm sure she could--
CELESTE: (Cont.) ....no, please (puts up her hand
in protest). I.... I don't want to bother my daughter.
(Sighs) Ha.... look, I'll be fine. D-Don't let me ruin your celebration,
now. I'm just going to finish this and be on my way, (looking towards
looks at her concerned. Jack is gently massaging her shoulder to
sooth her. Jennifer then turns to look at Jack with a worried expression.
Then she turns back to Celeste.
Look, Celeste, yo.... you're more than welcome to stay here and
lie down for a while, if you like.
CELESTE: (Reaching over and patting Jennifer) It's
so sweet of you Jennifer, but honestly I'll be
motions to Jennifer, and starts leading her away.
Jennifer, (clears his throat and motions with his head, they walk
waits until they are out of the room, and sits closer to Celeste
and talks softly to her. Celeste is deeply disturbed, and sips her
water, clutching the glass in both hands. Maggie asks if she is
all right. Not very convincingly Celeste says she is.
Thank you for not mentioning your.... (pauses) vision. I don't think
that Jack and Jennifer could handle it.
is very upset. She gives a slight nod.
In the hallway, Jack is talking quietly to Jennifer.
This is getting strange. Celeste is not telling us something.
JENNIFER: (So they cannot hear) Well, maybe it
has something to do with those vibes she was talking
JACK: I'm sure it does!
Well, whatever it's about I don't wanna know. I am not
going to let anything spoiler our happiness (she moves closer to
JACK: No, no....
falls into his arms, squeezing him tightly, too tightly.
(Cont.) ....no, nothing
will! (exhaling) Ahh.... nothing will!
holds her and caresses her hair. Jennifer looks on sick with worry.
She then looks over towards Celeste.
Back on the couch is soothing Celeste, and tells her that she should
take a nap, because she is not looking well. She goes into the kitchen
to get more water.
Celeste flashes back to the vision. Light emanates from the
skull. This time we see her too. She is standing staring at the
skull. The skull is now surrounded in a blood red light. She walks
towards the skull and gasps.
stops. The skull is hovering. She tentatively reaches for the skull.
Sparks fly from it and there are crackling noises. The skull explodes
and the room shakes. She gasps and then screams.
The vision or memory ends.
CELESTE: Oh, God, no! It's
worse than I thought!
Five: Jack and Jennifer are still in the hallway, holding each other
tightly. Jennifer finally lets go and looks up at Jack.
Jack, (touching his chest) ahh (caressing his face) I am so
rubs her back.
(Cont.) Now this is exactly how it should always be (looks up at
JACK: I think maybe we should take this little
celebration upstairs (pointing with his finger).
JENNIFER: (Smiles) We cannot do
that (glances with her eyes to the living room) we have guests.
(Continuing to point, nodding his head, and smiling a goofy smile)
JENNIFER: (Interested) Can we?
JACK: (Nods and points, mouthing the words) We
JENNIFER: (Laughing, leaning towards him) No we
JACK: Yes, we can!
JENNIFER: We have guests....
JACK: We can.
(Cont.) ....we can't do that.
JACK: (Frustrated, sighs) Ahh.... (rolls head and
eyes) Then, ah, why don't you say we kick this dying party up a
notch, and just (motions
with his head) get everybody some more champagne.
JENNIFER: Okay, that's a good idea (tugging on
JACK: (Still a little annoyed) Yeah!
JENNIFER: Better idea.
start to walk off, Jennifer is clutching onto Jack's arm.
stop before entering the living room, Jack whispers to Jennifer.
Looks like Celeste could use some champagne.
leads her through the living room
Meanwhile, on the couch Maggie offers Celeste another glass of water.
Maggie again tells her that she should go lie down. Celeste agrees.
Just then Jennifer and Jack return from the kitchen. Jack is carrying
a bottle of champagne.
Oh, Celeste. (Concerned) Ar.... Are you still not feeling bettering?
MAGGIE: (Not wanting to upset them) Aahh, no she
isn't, but (points to Celeste) sh.... she's going to go upstairs
and lie down for a while, after all. Uumm, and I'll show her where
the guest room is.
is standing behind Jennifer and has his hand on her shoulder, and
looks as concerned as Jennifer looks.
Ugh..., are you sure you don't want us to call Lexie, we can
CELESTE: I'm positive, Dahling! I'll be fine, thank
puts her hand on Celeste's arms. Jack and Jennifer watch, frowning,
their concern growing.
(Her voice sounds unconvinced and concerned) Okay.
JACK: (Gestures) Well, is there any-thing else
we can get you?
CELESTE: (Shakes her head) No. (Nods) Thanks, I'll
looks over at Jack and Jennifer, with a weak smile. Then she leads
Jack watches, frowns, and tilts his head trying to figure out
what is wrong.
I sure hope she's gonna be okay (turns to Jack).
JACK: ( Looking at the bottle) Maybe she had
too much champagne (then looks at Jennifer).
I didn't really (looks down at the bottle) see her have any, Jack.
JACK: (Looking down at the bottle then looks away)
Well, she'll be fine. (Looking down at Jennifer, smiles; he puts
his hands on her shoulders) Just like I'm going to be fine, and
you're going to be fine. Now that I'm back here, in the (with a
roguish smile) arms of the woman I love.
smiles back at him, filled with love for her husband.
(Cont.) The most beautiful woman in the world.
smile at each other, Jack flashes a crooked, charismatic grin.
(Cont.) I'm going to kiss you now (flashes his pearly whites). I
love you, Mrs. Deveraux (caresses her hair).
JENNIFER: (Giggles) I love you, Mr. Deveraux.
is caressing her chin with his thumb, then moves in for a kiss.
Jennifer responds, and puts her arms around his neck. The
camera then pans onto a lit candle in back of them, on the fireplace
mantle. It flickers ominously.
Six: Jack is arranging something on the fireplace mantle. Jennifer
walks past him with the partially eaten cake, carrying it to the
table with the rest of the leftovers -- there is quite a bit.
at Jack, motioning) What are we going to do with all this extra
walks over, having just come from Celeste. She is smiling, trying
to pretend everything is fine.
(Setting down the cake) Abby brought some to Chelsea at the hospital
(Points to Jack then picks up a napkin) And we have had
MAGGIE: Well, I'll take another piece home to
JENNIFER: Oh, you will! Thank you,
MAGGIE: Oh, I'll go get something to put it in
(starts to walk off)--
JENNIFER: Oh, okay, that's perfect.
walks towards the kitchen. Jack walks over towards Jennifer. Jennifer
is fixing the stuff on the table. She then wipes her hands with
Jennifer, I disagree. (Gestures) I feel like we've.... we've had
our cake, but we haven't eaten it too.
JENNIFER: (Turns to Jack) Oh, yes
we have! (Points to him) We have had enough, you and me!
JACK: Oh, no, no, no, (reaching for something
on the table) you haven't had.
JENNIFER: (Turns to him, protesting) No Jack,
no, I really don--
has a piece of cake in his had and brings it up towards her mouth.
JACK: (Putting it in her mouth) Here.
JENNIFER: (Hard for her to talk with cake in her
mouth) I really don't want anymore....
JACK: Hmmm (taking his fingers away)?
JENNIFER: (Moaning with pleasure from the taste)
JACK: Huh (widening his eyes, he likes his fingers)?
JENNIFER: (With the look of pleasure on her face)
JACK: (Continuing to lick the icing off his fingers)
Yes in deed.
JENNIFER: (Still eating, and enjoining it) That
is so good.
JACK: Huh, hmmm.
is still licking his fingers and Jennifer is enjoying the cake too,
looking at Jack. Just then music can be heard, a piano solo. It
is a song which was one of Jack and Jennifer's themes, Beth Neilsen
Chapman's "All I Have." Jennifer's eyes widen, and she
is thrilled to hear the song.
(Slightly slaps him) Hmmm! (Pointing) You hear that?! (Shakes him
excitedly) You hear the song?!
nods. Jack looks like he is not as thrilled, but obviously he is
enjoying the memories just as much.
JACK: It's that song you tried to
get me to dance to in the Spectator office. When you were my intern
and should have been working.
This is a recreated memory, but I think it fits well into who Jack
and Jennifer were during that time period] Jack does a little smirk,
it is obvious he is only pretending to be unemotional about it --
like he used to act when they were working together, and he pretended
to be unemotional and not having feelings for her, when he had.
Jennifer continues to be very emotional.
I know, I was trying to teach you something.
JACK: You taught something, all right....don't
dance with your intern.
can say you love me
I can't believe this is on Jack, I haven't heard this in
turns and uses the remote to turn up the volume. Behind her Jack
smiles, just as nostalgic and as excited as she is.
Hmmm.... Ohhhh (turns to Jack).
I'll believe that's true.
(Looking at her) You think maybe (putting out his hands and gesture
to indicate he is going to ask her to dance).... maybe I can (gestures)
make it up to you now without stepping on your feet.
You wanna take a little twirl with your intern?
JACK: I'd love to (grins) Miss Horton.
giggles at his calling her that. Jack raises his eyebrows and laughs.
begin to slow dance around. Smiling and looking with profound
love into each other's eyes.
slow dance around, and begin to kiss, deeply in love.
is nothing I would miss
then Celeste comes down the stairs, and watches them, depressed.
(Talk to herself) Oh I only wish your future was
filled with love and happiness.
turns to look at them. They continue to slowly dance, and kiss
and look into each other's eyes.
They are unaware of Celeste's dark and sad prophecy for them. Jennifer
falls into his arms, and rests her face on his chest, Jack rests
his head against hers.
long as we're in love like this.
All I have is all....
The song cuts off as the happy moment ends. What bad things are
in store for them, after only being reunited for less than a day.
